My story

[lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Dear all, thank you very much for visiting my page. This spring I am going to be running the London marathon; for those of you that know me, you will know that I am known for how much food I can put away, so I have decided to take up the challenge to run 26.2 miles.  I only started running this year with my sister, so it will be a bit of a challenge to get to that distance but I have great motivation to do so.  [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]As many of you are already aware, unfortunately my wife, Laura and I lost our first child due to an ectopic pregnancy.  Both of use were (and still are) utterly devastated by this loss and sometimes you can’t quite believe that it has happened to you.  This year has not been one of the easiest in my life but this just seemed like the icing on the cake.  However, the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust have been amazing support for both my wife and I.  [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]For those of you that do not know Ectopic Pregnancy is a common, life threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in early pregnancy. It affects 1 in 80 pregnancies in the UK and women who suffer have to face the physical trauma of major treatment, their own mortality, the impact on their future fertility and the sad loss of losing their baby all very quickly. This can be a very frightening and distressing experience.[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust believes that the deaths and trauma associated with ectopic pregnancy should be prevented or minimised and seeks to support women and their families through this difficult period of their lives. The Charity also provides Information, Education and Support to medical professionals who treat early pregnancy complications.[lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]Therefore it seems only fitting for me to run for this charity having just experienced this myself and to raise further awareness to help those that are in similar situations later on in life. [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]While the training is going to be tough, it is such a fantastic opportunity to raise a lot of money for a great cause and I will be inspired by the in[lt]/div[gt][p] Dear all, thank you very much for visiting my page.
